META_VS: Special Crypto Art Event with Rare Dgital Art backed by NFTs, Through April 10, 2021
In the craze of NFT news that has basically taken over the entirety of art news of 2021, what has been lost is what are the possibilities of the platform and these digital universes and not just the incredible sales numbers. I'll be honest, I've probably spent more time looking at the NFT market than perhaps some of the art that is being made (which much of it is worthy of a shrug) to things that are beginning to make a little bit more clearer of what the future can hold. One of the events that is worth checking out is META_VS, on "view" now through April 10th, called :a group exhibition that aims to inspire a new generation of collectors and art enthusiasts and offer an opportunity to purchase rare digital art from well established artists backed by NFTs and blockchain."
Highlights of the week include a themed MF DOOM Gallery packed with fan art auctioned to benefit the Doom Family foundation, DABSMYLA’s Secret Garden (find the portal to the other side), the debut of Mister Cartoon’s digital Grim Sleeper Impala as well as 50+ artists, 30+ galleries bridging the traditional and digital art worlds. A special collection of artists from BEYOND THE STREETS will present never seen before NFT drops on MakersPlace—and find them in cryptovoxels for even more new work and activations exclusive to the Meta_VS event.
Dare I say one of the reasons I even found myself deep into the META_VS world as it were was that it felt more like a traditional experiences. It's worth a "wander" around, to see the gallery rooms and themes and some of the digital experiences being created today...
